After suffering a beating in our last tournament our Tigers decided to regroup and show other teams what we’re made of. So, on Wednesday evening, against VES and Roanoke Catholic, both in our Conference, we showed some true Tiger spirit by dominating both teams.
Against Roanoke Catholic, Gabe Medlin, Quinn Griffith and Eli Hanson pinned their opponents while Rashed Khraisat earned his second win of the season battling it out the whole six minutes and winning 6-2. We ended the match with a score of 45-21.
When wrestling against VES, Kevin White, Gabe Medlin, Deven Wallace and Sebastian Richardson earned their pins. Sebastian’s first match was against an opponent who wasn’t more skilled, just much stronger. So Sebastian refocused and went toe to toe with his next opponent in a battle worthy of an action film, securing the pin in the second period. Quinn Griffith’s musclebound opponent started strong but Quinn’s conditioning and patience paid off with a 11-5 victory ending our night with a 57-18 win over VES.
With another tournament looming, we aim to parlay this recent confidence builder into more individual triumphs as we face 16 teams at the annual Courthouse Classic at Randolph Henry High School. Action is set to begin at 10:00, so come on out and revel in some high-energy competition!
